The Lebanese have become accustomed to spending hours on end stuck in traffic as the first drops of rain hit the streets, and over the years (and thanks to Photoshop) they have developed a sarcastic sense of humor about it.
This week, Lebanon was struck by a mini-storm which brought the first heavy showers since the start of the winter season.
Streets became lakes, cars became boats (or submarines), people were swimming on the streets or worse: in their own houses, because of the floods.
Knowing that there is not much that they can do about this situation, a lot of people resorted to good old Photoshop to express their frustration. If only our politicians were as talented in their work.
Without further ado, here are the top 5 Photoshop jokes about December rain in Lebanon.
